In the Zone

Fun, free and fascinating sports science

In the Zone is the Wellcome Trust's major initiative inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It provides a fun, free and fascinating way of using science to discover how our bodies work during sport, activity, movement and rest.

In the Zone

The major elements of the In the Zone initiative are:

  • Free science investigation kits for all schools in the UK, bringing the science of the human body to life in the classroom.
  • A touring exhibition, engaging people of all ages with the science of our incredible human body, in relation to sport and movement.

Teachers can download PowerPoints, editable Teacher and Student Notes, and extra resources to support you in delivering In the Zone investigations in your classroom.

4-11 year olds can play games about your brilliant bodies.

11-19 year olds can use the Live Data Zone to upload the results of In the Zone experiments and compare to other students across the UK.
